Six years after releasing her first solo album, Michelle Williams is finally back with her sophomore effort, “Unexpected”. Michelle’s new opus hit record store shelves earlier this week. Unfortunately, Hits Daily Double, has not posted their one day sales report which would have given us a glimpse into where Michelle’s album would have possibly landed on the charts next week. This is news I know everyone is excited to hear seeing as how Michelle’s entire album leaked to the net almost a month ago. Few people seem to think Michelle’s album will go top 10, but luckily for the singer, her record label seems to be sticking by the project. “The Greatest”- the second single from Unexpected is about to be sent to radio stations and a video has been shot as well.
After a 30+ year career in the entertainment industry and a 20+ year career on top of the music charts- Janet Jackson shows no signs of giving up her position. Hits Daily Double guesstimates that Janet’s new CD, “Discipline” sold about 180,000 copies- enough to put it in the #1 position on this week’s Billboard chart. Janet didn’t start promoting her new CD until last week when she performed on Good Morning America and MTV’s TRL, which makes her sales even more impressive. Look for Janet to keep up the heavy promoting this week as well. Janet appeared on the Tyra Banks show earlier today and is scheduled to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live later on tonight.
